One Love Manchester is a special concert to be held at Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground to honour and raise vital funds for the victims and families who were tragically affected by the Manchester attack after Ariana Grande’s show last week.

The concert will be broadcast live on BBC One, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 live, BBC World Service and BBC Radio Manchester, as well as commercial radio.

The BBC One TV coverage, broadcast from 6.55pm to 10pm, will be presented by Sara Cox and Ore Oduba, with Nick Grimshaw and Anita Rani hosting from backstage and in the crowd.

Between 6.30pm and 10pm, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio Manchester will join together to simulcast a programme hosted by Scott Mills, Jo Whiley, Phil Williams and Becky Want.

Bob Shennan, Director of Radio and Music says: "The One Love Manchester concert on Sunday will be a very special occasion that resonates throughout Manchester, around the UK and across the globe. BBC Music will unite radio services with BBC One to offer the best possible coverage of this unique national event.”
